Jeff Gordon stops by Rachael Ray this Thursday, October 1, to chat with Rachael about what’s new with this family, how he’s prepping for the playoff races, and more.

Discussing his team’s positioning for the upcoming races, Jeff said: “Our team has had a rough start to the season, but we’re rejuvenated right now; we’re like, ‘hey, anybody can win this thing.’…My final season, I think we’re in good shape.”

They also chat about whether Jeff sees his kids making a career out of racing. “I’m not pushing them to do it…but I think if they want to do it, great, I’ll support them and at least try to teach them the right steps,” he says. “But I’m not going to put that kind of pressure on them…I want them to have their own identity.”
